Whitney and Ben came down to my neck o' the woods for me to take their engagement pictures! It was so fun for them to visit. Whitney wanted to recreate the V-J Day photograph of the sailor kissing the nurse...but instead have Ben in his flight suit and she in a white dress. It turned out so great! Very fluid and swan like ...not exactly like the original but that's what's cool about it.

They also took some pictures around Bluff Dale which makes me happy they wanted to use my hometown for pictures they will keep forever.

Sabbatical Time...for Blog World..not Real World..

For those of you that read this..you probably have noticed that my posts are becoming far and few between. Well.. I suppose that is what happens when you are a busy bee like me. (I'm a poet and didn't know-it!) I am working on lots of different projects and I am grateful for them! I will try to posts here and there when I have something worthy. I'll show you a couple of things I've been working on...

I guess this is what happens when you are not vacationing in Montana but actually trying to make a livin' :)
Acton Nature Center Goodies. I incorporated everything that is great about the Nature Center into a poster to show people why they should come visit and donate money.

Heavenhill... a panorama of the place behind Witherspoons that I have been working on as well. This is fueling me to make more money because it is costing a lot of dinero ...like all old houses!

El Jardin

That's right folks. Got a garden now. I can see it from the windows...it's that close. Farmer is down from Montana and hooked up the "roto-tiller" to the tractor to plow the garden so it will be in tip top shape for spring. Cannot wait. I think I will buy a couple of winter transplants and start it up. I will need to research on how to make the soil the best it can possibly be. It's strange..it has a bit of clay and then sandy (dusty) soil. but I think it will do great!

Also what is fun..is that it is an old dumping ground from the Fallins. All sorts of broken dishes and even found part of a wagon axle, spike, and some other type of wagon part. I wonder if glass and porcelain is good fertilizer..because I would have myself a bountiful garden if that were the case!

Shotgun is a ham!!

Slide Show

I compiled a slide show of all the major things that have gone on around the farm in the past 4 years...yep farmer and I have been together for a little over 3 years but I met the place before I met him and just happened to take some pics when I was first introduced to the farm. Look at all that we have done in just 3 years and just think what we can do in another 3?? I am so proud of all that we have accomplished and I am grateful that farmer allows me to be part of this wonderful process of preserving his family's heritage.

This place is my heart and I love it dearly. I am so happy with all the things that we were able to save and make even better.

I hope you enjoy the slide show.
